  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

PTSD Claim pending approval

Question

My claim status is now Pending Decision Approval. It says  "The recommended decision is reviewed, and a final award approval is made. We will process the decision and review it for accuracy, and notify you by mail. If it is determined that more evidence or information is required, the claim will be sent back in the process for more information or evidence.". Hope this works out favorable!!

My claim was at gathering evidence then to preparation for decision, then back to gathering evidence. When it went back to gathering evidence, my C&P examiner called me for some additional paperwork that the VA requested. I provided what I had and she said it was good and would write an addendum to the VA with the paperwork. A week later I'm back to preparation to decision and then Pending decision approval in one day. Then my date moved up to 11/2/17. What does this mean? Does this sound like a good sign?

Welcome aboard,

My FDC claim that I filed last month just did the same thing. Went back and forth a few times, with no C&P exam required on this claim. As of yesterday morning it went to Prep for Notification, and just now at 5:00am  it is complete with success. That is very normal for the claim status to change, as Ebenefits is not always up to date. Just try not to go crazy, lol. Good luck and keep us posted. God Bless

Thank you for sharing. I'm becoming an Ebenefits addict. lol. It's just that I submitted so many things after my C&P that would have changed my C&P outcome but I've called and they assured me that they looked at everything I sent and they don't base it off just the C&P alone.

Once you get a decision and you don't agree with it for what ever reason  you can disagree with them , you have a year to do that.(Notice of Disagreement)

Remember if they don't use the information /evidence you sent in after your C&P or they don't use it in making the decision ? you keep that and use it for your disagreement (NOD)  So check your ''What We Decided'' close  or reason and basis of their decision

Although it could be a possible CUE but would be a Hard CUE to win out unless the information evidence they had and never used it could have change the outcome of the decision.

who ever told you or assured you they read it  you need to ask that person to send you an email to confirm that statment  ''phone calls'' will not be used as proper evidence  so even though  what they tell you on the phone  its not good or can be use in your claim...they can say they don't remember having a phone conversation  or get out of it some how.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
